The mission of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is to identify and pursue high-risk, high-payoff research initiatives across a broad spectrum of science and engineering disciplines and to transform these initiatives into disruptive technologies for
U. S. national security.
In support of this mission, the DSO Office-wide BAA invites proposers to submit innovative basic or applied research concepts that explore Physical and Natural Systems, Human-Machine and Social Systems, and/or Math and Computational Systems through the lens of one or more of the following technical domains:
Complexity Engineering, Science of Design, Noosphere, Fundamental Limits, and New Foundations.
Proposals must investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances.
DSO is explicitly not interested in approaches or technologies that primarily result in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice.
